DICE OF PARTICULAR NOTE

   These dice (Small Onyx) were a gift from a friend and co-worker (Thanks Chuck)


   These are quite odd ... On first appearance they seem to be yellow precision dice
        On closer examination ... they are semi-transparrant


  Winkelmann Dice were added this month ... Dr Winkelmann has devised several
      games for which these beautys can be used


   Were you wondering what the D&D Deluxe Dice looked like versus their
              Standard Dice?


     GAMES WORKSHOP released the Vehicle Damage DIce this month


    MINION GAMES finally released their Dry Erase Dice ... you can write on them
              with Dry erase pens ...




    These are a real treasure from GAMESTATION... Real Ivory precision dice
          Custom designed by Jason Witten ... They come (legally) from zoo animals
          that have passed ... so I only have a little guilt about having these made

     "And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the
      earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air,
      and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth." - Genesis 1:28

     "It is only a shell ... do with it what you will" - Worf  (STTNG)


   These are a real find ... precision poker dice ... at first I thought that the dice
      did not belong to the box ... after examination I can now see signs of a good
      bit of aging ... I know that George & Co also made precision poker dice

      but they have bevelled edges whereas these have razor edges


   I had seen singles of this set (Royal Tires Poker dice) in the past ... This set not
       only is in the orignal box ... the original rules are also included


     LIke the Royal Tires set above ... this set also includes the rules ... but in French
          These are somewhat rare as they are French only poker dice

      The French / English style is more common


     It just goes to show ... you never know where you will find dice ... these dice came
          from a game (UBI) ... that I found in the back of my closet ... Who knows how
          long it was back there ... I only remember receiving it as a gift and that I never
          played it ... there was an interesting game piece included in this game that   
          inspired me to assemble the 103rd dice shape ....
     Shape #103 ... I am not even sure what to call this shape


     An interesting dice game from JAX


      For you Lady Sovereign fans out there ... Hip Hop isnt my thing ... but at least
           I can understand the lyrics






       This month was a bonanza for the YAHTZEE theme
